A Spanish school founded by Spanish teachers

Learning a new language can be frustrating sometimes.

We know that feeling of getting stuck mid-sentence during a conversation all too well. That’s why we founded Jaleo. We teach based on how YOU learn, with our methodology specifically designed to help you get over your Spanish-phobia.

Cultural activities with Jaleo Madrid

Cultural Activities

Do you want to enjoy gastronomy, art, idioms, etc.? Do you want to practice outside of class?

We offer a cultural class every week, outside of the course schedule. Those sessions can be at the school or outside and you can learn about the culture, meet new people, and practice Spanish.

These activities are not mandatory and they are included in all intensive, semi-intensive, and part-time courses. For free!

Additionally, one Saturday per month, students and teachers gather at a typical market in Madrid for the coolest event at the school, “Hangout with Jaleo”. There, we practice the language, get to know all the schoolmates, and have something to drink in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. All our students love it!
